How I store rods on the boat w/ treble hook baits
My rod lockers are too short for the gear I use, so I generally have a stack of 8-10 rigs on the left/front deck. I had the expected issues with crankbaits and jerkbaits tangling other rigs, and ripping my boat cover. I tried the [velcro envelopes](https://imgur.com/FHQ7x5z), but they don’t play well with rod sleeves. I also gave the [capsules](https://imgur.com/bBVSx1J) a shot, but they’re fragile and don’t fit the bigger baits well. I’m currently storing them like [this](https://imgur.com/a/SXzBt95) (one of my son’s rod shown). Spinning the line around the guides pulls the bait in even closer, and everything is well clear of the braided sleeves. So far, so good:) Edit: Spinnerbaits and jigs get their single hooks hung onto the baitcasting reel hood, and I drop the T-rig bullet weight between the frame and the drag star, and they’re just as secure. I use a spinning setup for dropshotting – for that, I pass the weight under the pickup on the bail and use an envelope for the bait/hook up the rod w/ a shorter sleeve… Not ideal.
